    Hooray! I've managed to get a public build of Sunshine! out a few days ago. This means more awesome Sunshine! for everyone! Of course, there had been additions since then. Just check out the changelog, install the app, or update if you're already one of the wonderful users to find out all the awesomeness awaiting!

    Download here:
    Sunshine! The Beautiful Weather App

    SUNSHINE VERSION 3.5 CHANGELOG
    • A new weather provider! The old weather forecasting wasn't too bad, but forecast.io brings accuracy and information depth to a whole new level.
    • Added support of themes. Whether you have a light or dark theme, whether your accent color is magenta or steel, the app will adapt beautifully to your theme.
    • Bugs removed! Well, I hope so anyways. In other words, rewriting the app means things are done better, simpler, and more stable. I couldn't get the thing to crash even when I tried.
    • Graphs! Swipe to the left to get graphs of temperature and precipitation for the next 24 hours!
    • New splashscreens (yes, there's multiple). Subtle yet beautiful ;) Look at the two screenshots below, they come from the Beta app.
    • New graph colors, small UI cleanup, lots of new languages supported!
    Have an awesome day,
    Tom

    I'm sorry to hear that, did you try using the link in the video's description?

    Well, it looks like I can post links now! OP updated with direct links and video to avoid confusion. Yay!

    Also, I should add, I'm completely open to any feature requests and suggestions. I'll be updating the app with whatever you request. Or at least I'll try ;) The same goes for help with photos and translations.
    Want your language to be supported? Let me know, and I'll give you a fairly short list of phrases to translate, and the next day your app will speak your language .
    Want your photos in the app? Add them here:Our Flickr pool

    is there any possibility to set temperatures to Celsius ?
    10-07-2014 05:59 AM
  8. Tom Mrazek's Avatar
    The units displayed depends on your region. I'm going to assume you have the US or UK region applied to get Cortana. I will release an update today which will allow you to manually switch between Celsius/Farenheit, but for now you can change your region to English (Canada) and still keep all the features you may want.

    How frequently the live tile updates ??
    10-07-2014 12:48 PM
  10. Tom Mrazek's Avatar
    The live tile updates as often as the phone allows it to. It's basically the decision of the operating system. But the general rule is that this is never more than 40 minutes. If your phone is connected to a power outlet and has enough resources, this can drop down to updates every minute.

    only a few things required.fliiping Back tiles, weather in Celsius and the sunshine name on the live tile looks confusing as there is already the weather status...

    I'm working on the celsius switcher this very instant. Regarding the live tile, the name is what makes it unique, although I'll consider it as I see it could be confusion. A live tile with with more information in general would be nice and will come with updates ;)

    Another update - this one is minor-ish (1.1.1.1 - how perfect!). I fixed occasional photo-loading and author-loading issues, increased photo quality and added quite a bunch of new photos, mostly of the Czech Republic (but the database is growing all the time, and things are being added. Recently this have been cities such as Brno (Czech Republic), Stockholm, and another, small Swedish city). There is a new, more positive splash screen too. Head to the store, where it should appear any minute!

    I'm just going to leave this here... theme support, lots of graphs and a new, much more accurate forecasting provider. It's like a whole new app! Oh wait, it is, I completely re-wrote it. Coming soon! (and by soon I mean within an hour or two) Oh, and did I mention all of the previous bugs are gone?
